Actually all those little images with galaxy s2 looks very bad and over satured. Hope you can adjust that. I wouldnt want that kind of display.

Well for you that already have bought an iPhone 4, it's something different. But the point here is to let peoples knows that there exist better and cheaper phones on the market today and it's a good thing to let them know that.
But, Galaxy S II have so many things that makes it much better to use in daily usage over iPhone 4. You can use a Bluetooth mouse and bluetooth keyboard and connect that to the Galaxy S II and use it as a mini computer.
You have this thing called USB-on-the-go. That means you can connect your external harddrive right to your Galaxy S II and watch MKV movies right from the harddrive.
Galaxy S II have 21 Mbps HSDPA, where iPhone 4 only have 7.2 Mbps HSDPA. And with this, it will make it better to actually watch movies while you are streaming over internet to your phone.
You can connectthe Galaxy S II to 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks where iPhone 4 only can connect to 2.4 GHz networks.
Galaxy S II have something called Wi-Fi Direct that iPhone 4 doesn't have.
Galaxy S II can use microSD card that makes it even easier to take movies with you on the go. And that also makes it easier to get files from your friends if you want something from them, for example.
Galaxy S II have DLNA witch iPhone 4 doesn't have. I think you know what DLNA is, so i hope i don't have to explain that to you.
Galaxy S II supports waaaaaaaayway more movie and music files than iPhone 4 ever can dream of getting.
Galaxy S II have Gorilla Glass that makes it very resistant to scratches.
The touch panel on the Galaxy S II's screen actually supports up to 10 fingers at the same time while iPhone 4 only supports 2 or 4 fingers max.
Ok, i'm gonna stop here, because if i'm gonna write everything down on what the Galaxy have that iPhone 4 doesn't have, then this list will be very long.
So when you see what iPhone 4 actually doesn't have today in 2011, then i'm afraid that i have to call iPhone 4 for a bad phone for what you have to pay for it and it's a very outdated phone compared to what you get on other phones today no matter on how good iPhone 4 are in your eyes.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2011Well i'm not directly talking about copying over a movie from your iPhone 4 to your computer w... moreComparing a new phone for 2011 against the iPhone from 2010 is hardly fair. But honestly I'd rather have last years iPhone over this years Android.
And why in the world are you comparing the iPad to a phone???? Yes same chip and same iOS as the iPhone, but plenty of other different hardware. And if you really want to compare the iPad, try beating it for battery life. The 10 battery life Apple claimed... its TRUE!

Apple doesnt like pirating, if you want to do things like that iPhone is clearly wrong choice.
"And the things you say about using VLC player to stream movies and such. This is something that require Wi-Fi / 3G network to be able to work."
I never saying anything about streaming movies?, are you sure you have used iPhone? :) File sharing isn't anything to do with streaming, it's like mass storage device, you do just same what you do with your my computer.
"It's much better to have the movie files stored on the phone if you want to see a movie."
Exactly file sharing put the videos to your phone, or any files what you want to move.
"If you don't like the size of the Galaxy S II or HTC Sensation, then we have this phone that isn't so big: http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_desire_s-3776.php"
I "never" going to buy htc phone, if i'm going to buy some other than iPhone (which i doubt), it's going to be samsung or those new nokia WP7 phones.
Tom-Helge, 04 Jul 2011No you wasn't one of those 3 guys with "Anonymous" as name, so i'm not talking about... moreYour last comment there with the youtube video... There is a video that shows an Android user talking the same way. They were made as stereotypes and for fun, not serious videos.
Your post goes on and on and all its saying is that you think the iPhone sucks and the Android is better. Apparently people don't think as you do since the iPhone (being only like 2 different devices) is holding onto such a massive market share. Android's share, while huge, is made up of probably 100 different phones. Android OS has lots of features, but many of them are glitchy and use up a lot of memory and battery life. There are users out there that would claim exactly as you do that the iPhone does 3-5 times as many things as any Android device.
Look I didn't start this, but you need to keep in mind that being insulting isn't getting you points... just more people arguing with you. And as I told you before... I do NOT own an iPhone. I have a Nokia. But I do use iOS in my iPad and iPod. I'd rather use anything iOS over anything Android and I have the personal experience to support my reasoning. I've never had a problem with any iOS device I've owned. Sadly the one Android I had gave me headaches. Once I turned it off and on again because it was acting funny... turned that Samsung back on and - AAARRGGHHH - apps were gone, facebook messed up, widgets were a mess... you name it!! I don't blame Samsung I blame Google!
There is one thing an Android phone can do better than an iPhone: crash!
And while you are compiling your list be sure to remember that its all about the software, not the hardware... so listing "dual core chip" doesn't count. Actually I have no plans of giving you a list because you and I would list probably different things and we'd never see eye to eye. I honestly just feel iOS is a better mobile OS due to its security and power consumption, among a whole list of things. And its never crashed on me.
The Sensation is a decent phone, but the same people that bashed the iPhone antenna issue are the same ones now defending the Sensation - which has MORE problems.
One thing you forget is that the iPhone is more expensive (sometimes), but its competing against phones of lesser build quality that are mostly plastic. My galaxy was plastic and felt cheap!!! And I paid $200 for it!!!!
As for video transfer... how is that hard??? I plugged in my iPod, turned on iphoto... and there it was. TRANSFER! While you are waiting for blutooth to move your 2 minute video over I'm editing mine already.
See how this works? Its all in how you look at things.
So keep going with your arguments and insults. I refuse to sit here and insult you like you've been insulting me and others. That's just childish.
Duel, 04 Jul 2011"Oh also, please explain to me on how you transfer a movie you have copied to your iPhone... moreWell i'm not directly talking about copying over a movie from your iPhone 4 to your computer when you already have the movie file on your computer.
I'm talking about moving files from your friends computers to your phone and back from your phone back to your own computer.
This is something that is very hard to do and there doesn't exist an easy way of moving files to your iPhone 4 and from it to your computer.
And the things you say about using VLC player to stream movies and such. This is something that require Wi-Fi / 3G network to be able to work.
If you are on a vacation somewhere where you don't have 3G connection and no Wi-Fi connection, then what are you going to do?
Wait for the movie to load for 2 days before you can see it because you only have EDGE connection?
See the problem of going that way?
It's much better to have the movie files stored on the phone if you want to see a movie.
If you don't like the size of the Galaxy S II or HTC Sensation, then we have this phone that isn't so big: http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_desire_s-3776.php
If you deny that iPhone 4 have about the same performance as Samsung Galaxy S II, then you have never tried Galaxy S II.
Here, take a look on how much iPhone 4 gets butt raped in those tests here.
iPhone 4 feels bad and very outdated after using the Galaxy S II.
When it's about iPhone 5. If it's going to use the same CPU and GPU as iPad 2 is using, and if it's going to use iOS 5, that it will ofc lol. Then iPhone 5 have already lost in performance in web browsing movie performance even before it's released.
Galaxy S II stomped iPad 2 with iOS 5 totally over in alot of web browser benchmarks.
Tom-Helge, 04 Jul 2011No you wasn't one of those 3 guys with "Anonymous" as name, so i'm not talking about... moreAnd i think galaxy s2 is awesome phone i'm very surprised how well it runs flash, but it's not best phone for ME! And it looks/feels like cheap iPhone clone for me.
Many has tried to explain that for you. You cant say what others want, they know that better byself.
iPhone can offer almost everything what i want and much more, no reason to chance to other brands, of course i know galaxy s2 can offer some things what i cant get, but iPhone can too. For example i got killer app for iPhone. Flstudio mobile, now i can compose music ideas with my phone and continue them with my home computer flstudio. PRICELESS. I can put my music keyboard to my phone and using that with flstudio mobile and many different apps.
For now there isn't any other phones out there which can do that what i get from iPhone in musical aspect, not even close.
You sayed that your android can do much more than what iPhone. Doesnt work with my situation and i'm sure there's many others too maybe some different reason what iPhone can offer.
Tom-Helge, 04 Jul 2011Alright, just the fact that you ask on why we need to see 1080p movies on out phones tell me y... more"Oh also, please explain to me on how you transfer a movie you have copied to your iPhone 4 via iTunes back to your computer in an easy way?"
If i transfer movie from itunes, it's already in my computer, what's the point copying it again?
But if u need to do that the easiest way is using itunes file sharing options. I use vlc player to watch videos, i move them by drag'n' drop style over itunes "new" file sharing options same works with movin videos back to computer, still i never needed that because the videos are already on my computer.
That file sharing works just like mass storage, only difference is you start my computer etc, i start itunes. After that we both do the same thing drag'n'drop files. Before that file sharing option it was very hard and annoying, but that option has been like one year now.
Let's make this easy, you try to convince people that other phones are better and why buying iPhone when there's much better choices, then you talk about galaxy s2, htc sensation and phones like that. What if i don't want phone to be that BIG? For example i like iPhone size, i don't want any bigger phone, if it can be side to side screen i would take bigger screen, but definately don't want those huge phones.
Still most of average users pick the smaller screen, you can clearly see that from phone sells. Im happy that Apple isn't going to compete with screen size like others. For me galaxy s2 screen was way too big to use, almost useless with one hand.
I hate that almost every interesting phones are huge nowdays, i'v been waiting good WP7 phones about year now and only interesting ones has been huges phones and heavy.
Then you are talking about iphone performance and other phones do better, i hardly doub that. iPhone 3gs and it came 2009 it has 600mhz cpu and old gpu. Well it still runs perfectly one of the best looking iOS game (dead space) that game came this year. i'm sure that there isn't any other 2009 phone which can run that. I'm still amazed how powerfull 3gs is, it runs iOS very smooth, it runs browser perfectly smooth, it runs most newest games perfectly.
iPhone 4 can easily compete in performance with galaxy s2. Still iPhone 4 real competitor was galaxy s and iPhone 4 won that.
Im quite sure when iPhone 5 comes it's most powerful performance mobile phone at the market. iOS is so light OS compared to android. And also iOS devices are always been very well optimized.
I'm waiting iPhone 5, it's actually only phone which i want those what phone market is offering now.
EndlessDream94, 04 Jul 2011The 3 people under you? i was one of them and I didn't use "Anonymous".
You ar... moreNo you wasn't one of those 3 guys with "Anonymous" as name, so i'm not talking about you. Look who are under your post there.
HTC Sensation have it's problems like other phones have to, but it's still a very nice phone that can do what most peoples demands out of a phone today.
And i'm not trying to convince people to dump their iPhones. I'm trying to speak some facts to those peoples that haven't bought a smart phone yet or that is about to buy a new one.
Peoples have the right to know that it's a bad idea to buy an iPhone 4 now because of 2 reasons.
1. iPhone 5 is some few months away from being released.
2. Because there exist Android phones on the market today that is way cheaper and can do as much as an iPhone 4 can do and is even better than iPhone 4 on what it can do.
Because you know, most peoples doesn't really cares about this and that or on what the phone can do as you guys are saying right?
Then most peoples choose the cheaper phone that can do what they want the phone to do.
I don't know why they should go and spend alot of money on a phone that you can get much cheaper and do all of the things they want the phone to do on an Android phone rather than buying an iPhone 4 just because you say it's good.
You know, choices are one hell of an important thing. And peoples today gets recommended to buy an Android phone, because they gives you the choice on what you want to pay and get.
And because of this, there is absolutely no problems for anyone here on GSMArena to tell the facts and tell the community that there exist more phones in the market today than only iPhones.
Ok, to your next reply. I'm then gonna go to the thing you was talking about the 40-50% thing.
I can do it very easy. You lists down everything you know the iPhone 4 can do and then i'm gonna list down everything my Galaxy S II can do.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but my list will be 3-5 times longer than your list. Because first of all. I have been using the iPhone 4 my self for a period. And secondly, i know what iOS can do in and out.
So you can try to argue about this thing as much as you can, but the list of what the Galaxy S II can do just murders the list to the iPhone 4.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand then to the omg this is soooooooooo easy to do to transfer a movie from your iPhone 4 to your computer.
I mean seriously, do you even consider that for EASY? LOL.
Before you even have started the process of starting the transfer of the movie to your computer with that process, then i probably have started to transfer my 2nd or 3rd movie to my computer already.
So yes, it's slow and it's a very hard way to move / copy movies and files from your iPhone 4 to your computer.
And lastly, when it's about the last thing you say about recommending phones. Well, read over on why i recommend Android phones to peoples everywhere.
EDIT: And just to show what i'm talking about that shows exactly why i don't recommend iPhones to anyone today. Just see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FL7yD-0pqZg
And this is sadly a thing that happens all the time.
Tom-Helge, 04 Jul 2011Alright, just the fact that you ask on why we need to see 1080p movies on out phones tell me y... more"Alright, just the fact that you ask on why we need to see 1080p movies on out phones tell me you don't think far."
OK, Tom, I wasn't trying to be insulting when I asked you that question, because you never clarified. I'm aware of playback, but you never said that. You bragged about it as if playing a 1080p video on your phone was a big deal. But I can see by how you replied that you have no desire to be civil... just insulting.
And the iPhone is certainly NOT only 40-50% as useful as an Android device. That is just fanboy talk and cannot be proven whatsoever.
How do you transfer a movie from the iPhone? I'll add in the iPod touch because its the same process. There are at least 2 ways that I know of. When you plug it in... Open iPhoto and the iPod or iPhone will appear in the devices or sources list (been a while since I did this). Or you can open iMovie and go to "import movie" The iPod or iPhone will appear. Its not difficult. On other devices I've used its not hard either... you just have to navigate through the folders that appear to get to the videos or photos.
And I'm not recommending any phone here! Its user choice. YOU are the only one pushing a platform here and being very insulting about it. Look... IVE USED ANDROID! I grew weary of the problems ok? I just didn't care enough about specs to keep using it. Just because it has better specs doesnt' mean it will run better. My N8 runs better and its specs are far less. And from what I've seen the higher end Android devices seem to be the only ones that can run Android smoothly without lagging or other issues. My Galaxy at the time was a decent phone and Samsungs flagship. But for it to lag a lot and crash so much was not a good way to keep me on Android.
Again - as all of us have been saying... its NOT about specs but about software.
Tom-Helge, 04 Jul 2011LOL to those 3 under me for posting with Anonymous as names. To scared to reveal your name?
... moreThe 3 people under you? i was one of them and I didn't use "Anonymous".
You are still going on and on with this like you are going to convince people to dump their iPhones. And if you can't convert them you feel the need to be insulting. It just seems like this is becoming very common among Android users here in these comments.
The HTC Sensation is NOT what a phone should be. There was a very good article here showing the Sensation loses not only bars, but wifi, AND bluetooth when held a certain way. Remind you of any other phones? The Android fans seemed to have a hard time dealing with that one. The Sensation isn't a horrible device, just it suffers from what MANY other phones suffer from. These are not perfect devices... heck even my SE Vivaz lost signal when I held it a certain way. The Galaxy S did, and so does my N8.
You can go on and on bashing away at the iPhone but I'd rather play Angry Birds on my 3.5" iPod touch than when I was able to play it on my Galaxy S (it lagged on that). The iPhone/iPod's retina display is awesome to use.
EndlessDream94, 04 Jul 2011Interesting argument here going back and forth. I noticed something you said about the Galaxy... moreAlright, just the fact that you ask on why we need to see 1080p movies on out phones tell me you don't think far.
Have you ever hear about playing your movies from the phone via the HDMI output to your TV?
Yes, iPhone 4 have good battery life, but that doesn't help when an iPhone 4 only can do 40-50% of what an Android phone can do. Good battery life doesn't help there i'm afraid.
Peoples are demanding much more out of a smartphone today than what they did in 2008.
And when you see on how much peoples is really demanding, then the most advanced and the highest spec'ed phones today are almost like a mini computer.
And why do you think peoples want such phones in the first place?
Yes, it's because we are in 2011 and we demand quite alot out of phones today.
And to the thing about Bluetooth. Yes, Bluetooth is slow for the most part. But you know what?, my Galaxy S II have Bluetooth 3.0 that is pretty fast that can transfer files with high speed.
Oh also, please explain to me on how you transfer a movie you have copied to your iPhone 4 via iTunes back to your computer in an easy way?
You can also use Wi-Fi, but that's also very slow compared to having the external harddrive functionality where you can just copy over files and then plug the phone into another computer with the USB cable and take the file from the phone right to the other computer.
So yes, i don't see why peoples really recommend peoples an iPhone 4 today when you get phones that is basicly extremely much better and where those phones butt rape iPhone 4 to breakfast when it comes to smoothness and performance and on top of that is even cheaper than iPhone 4.
And not just that, but why recommend an iPhone 4 now when iPhone 5 is just some few months away?
Tom-Helge, 03 Jul 2011About Street Fighter. No you can't if this is about Android games. But if you install a PSX em... more"Anonymous" is right... you are coming across very combative insulting the iPhone and its users. And he's right, I've seen Android users bash down users of not only the iPhone, but Nokia/Symbian/Meego, Blackberry, Windows, etc. Its like desktop OS wars "Mac vs PC" etc. I had an android fanboy insult the crap out of me because I used a Nokia N8, I think it had something to do with the camera. But its hard to lose an argument when discussing the N8's camera. I think it was a Galaxy 2 user... something about the 8mp camera on his phone being better than my N8. Which can be proven wrong by going to the comparison tool on this website. The N8 wins hands down. It takes incredibly beautiful photos and the video capture is impressive too, its not 1080p, but it has lossless zoom... which I've never seen on a phone. The 720 capture remains constant even while zoomed.
But anyway, getting back to the point of what he said... bashing away at other platforms is just dumb, seriously. Comparing is fine, but to go into an all out war is just ridiculous. And for as much as many Android (and even iPhone) users will deny this... no phone is perfect and no phone will be the best at everything. I love my Nokia N8, but it has shortcomings. But it works for what I want. My previous phone (before the crashing Galaxy S) was a Sony Ericsson Vivaz running Symbian with an awesome camera. Get my point? I love phones with great cameras. And for a phone that's only running at 680mhz... this N8 is still pretty fast. And that is what its all about... being happy with the phone you have and if it meets YOUR needs. Its not about having the best specs. Its about features that work for the different types of users out there.
LOL to those 3 under me for posting with Anonymous as names. To scared to reveal your name?
Doesn't really matter on how many games or apps iOS have, the key factor here is that i get much better experience on an Android device with a 4+ inch screen.
And i'm not alone on saying this. I'm just saying that peoples that defend iPhones today have never tried a mobile phone like Samsung Galaxy S II or HTC Sensation. Or those peoples have never ever tried Android 2.3.x.
You get phones with much much better specs and much better experience than iPhone 4 today.
When the first iPhone was released back in 2007, then Apple gave every damn phone makers a kick in the ass to wake up. And what happened.
Yes, most of the phone companies did ACTUALLY wake up and started to make phones that already in 2009 started to be better than iPhones.
And this just got better and better for each years that went. Now in 2011, then Android really shows what a smart phone should be, specially on the Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Sensation.
And if Android and Samsung specially continues to develop in this speed when it comes to Android and Android phones, then iOS will end up the same way as Symbian did.
Symbian was pretty good back in the days, until other mobile OS'es came out on the market. The new mobile OS'es was racing in extremely high speed way over Symbian in development.
And because Symbian was slow to give new updates and slow to bring new things, peoples got bored of Symbian and they left for other mobile OS'es.
And how much have iOS changed since iOS came out for the first time?
It have got some few new things here and there, but those things are just small compared to what Android have been giving us.
And if Apple continues to develop iOS in the same slow speed as they do now, then at some points peoples will get bored of it. Like peoples did with Symbian even when it got some few updates here and there with some small new things.
But it's not a secret that most of the iPhone / iPad users are already in the Apple religion with other iOS devices or other Apple products already.
So it doesn't comes as a bomb that they will continue to be in the same religion, because it makes the life easier.
So when it comes to the normal user today (that isn't in common with any Apple products) is choosing Android for the most part, simply because Android phones is delivering what peoples require out of a smart phone today in 2011.
A smartphone today is a very important toll that you should have with you that should help you with all of the different tasks that you should be able to do.
iPhone 4 / iOS lacks alot of those important things today, and that's why many peoples doesn't even think of getting an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5.
Tom-Helge, 03 Jul 2011About Street Fighter. No you can't if this is about Android games. But if you install a PSX em... moreInteresting argument here going back and forth. I noticed something you said about the Galaxy playing 1080p videos where the iPhone can't. The screen resolution of the Galaxy appears to be 480 x 800. And the iPhone, even with the Retina display while better is still only 640 x 960. What is the point of playing a 1080p video on a screen that can't even support a full 720 resolution? Or are you talking about being able to plug it into an external source like an HDTV and it will play in 1080p?
As for the other points or your arguments... I agree with the other guy. To most diehard android users they really get stuck on "specs" and only specs when it comes to this. I posted here earlier that its not about the specs its about software. iOS runs on very little in comparison and Apple has made many (but not all) smart decisions with iOS. This is why iOS devices have been winning all battery life tests across the board - iPhones, iPads, iPods, etc. And while the Android market is growing it still doesn't have near the amount of actual usable GOOD apps. When I used my Galaxy there were way too many apps to change the "skin" of the UI, or endless useless porn apps... lots of repeat apps (not "like" apps, but actually rips of other apps). In iOS the apps just seem more polished and less frantically thrown in there. This, however, is something that Google appears to be trying to rectify, but we'll see.
As for bluetooth file transfer.... Its all well and good but I can almost guarantee that you can plug in an iPhone and have certain files transferred faster than by using bluetooth. To transfer a 2 minute video from my phone via bluetooth takes a while. With iOS devices its not long at all. But either way is fine with me, bluetooth never really felt like a necessity to me.
But I agree with him... choose what you want and what works best for you. I've use Android and personally hate it... it felt so fragmented and I was always worried about corrupt files messing up my phone. I never have that fear with iOS. But that is my choice and I have valid reasons for it. I'm not just sitting here yelling out "specs" like the mean everything.
Tom-Helge, 03 Jul 2011About Street Fighter. No you can't if this is about Android games. But if you install a PSX em... moreBoth games you mentioned are in iPhone. iPhone however has more exclusives like Chaos Rings, Infinity Blade, Rage.
Don't even go there. Android has advantages, but iPhone stomps Android to the ground in gaming. Even rabid Fandroids are smart enough not to bring that up.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2011By the way, you still didn't answer my questions. You have the most powerful phone on the plan... moreWell said! Tom sounds more desperate with each reply maybe coz he dont understand no one's fighting him. What a douche!
Tom-Helge, 03 Jul 2011About Street Fighter. No you can't if this is about Android games. But if you install a PSX em... moreLOL I will let the users here decide. I have repeatedly posted examples, not how iOS is better, rather it is different. But you seem to either not understand, or choose to ignore. No one ever said iPhone was definitely better. I never also said Android is absolutely better. They have pros and cons, and people can choose what they decide suits them best. But no, you seem hellbent on winning a war no one is fighting heh.
You keep on choosing to insult the choice of others. Actually, not surprising. Read other comment sections, Blackberry, Nokia, and you will find the same attitude amongst Android users there.
I chose the electric guitar example, precisely because not many people use that by the way. My point was to illustrate that different people like different things, and they should be free to.
How about a business traveller who likes dual-sim? Both Galaxy S and iPhone 4 would lose to a simple dumbphone with two sim slots. Not many need this as their must-have feature, but they exist no?
In my comments, I never once told you to convert to iPhone, neither did I insult your choice. Yet you decide to insult my choice, and proceed to try and convince me why I should not be happy. is this what Android users do? Try and convince people happy people why they should be unhappy? Pretty sad existence.
I think I have said enough on the matter. In the end, your comments do more damage to Android users' image, than an iPhone fanboy could.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2011By the way, you still didn't answer my questions. You have the most powerful phone on the plan... moreAbout Street Fighter. No you can't if this is about Android games. But if you install a PSX emulator, then you can. But more importantly, i can play Order & Chaos Online and Eternal Legacy on my Galaxy S II that is waaaaaaaay way better than Street Fighter.
You can do the same on iPhone 4, but the experience is much better on a screen that is 0.8 inch bigger than iPhone 4 screen anyways.
And how many plugs in an electric guitar to their smartphones today?
It's very few. But still, it's a good thing to have incase you need it sometimes. You see, i even see the benfit of having the possibility to do that rather than saying "who needs that and it's crap because no one use it".
I rather have a program on my smartphone that have a total sound package with all of the instrument plugins where you don't need to plug in an electric guitar to just get the guitar sound you like.
Oh wait, the storage space on iPhone 4 is LOL with only 16 or 32 GB. So i see why iPhone 4 doesn't really have the space to move all of the sounds and instrument plugins to the phone memory. So that's why you have to use your own instruments to get the sounds you like. We with Android phones can buy a 32 GB microSD card or two on top of the 16 GB we have on our Galaxy S II phone, so we have more space to actually have all of that on our phones.
And as for the statement that iOS is better than Android in gaming. Yes, to some points it is and to some points it's far from being that.
The only reason why gaming is "better" on iOS is because of how many games that are available to iOS devices.
But, the reason why the experience under gaming on iPhone 4 is worser than on Galaxy S II for example, is because playing games on a 3.5 inch (LOL, dwarf size) screen is rather bad, then i rather wait a little time until the games gets released on Android to and play it on Galaxy S II or the best gaming smartphone in the world, aka Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play.
Just because Steve Jobs says iPhone 4 is so good bla bla bla and because you love to bite on his propaganda, then it's still far from being the truth on what he says. You can love your gaming on iPhone 4, but the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play beats the freaking crap out of the iPhone 4 in gaming experience.
And you can also love you rather LOL FAIL experience in web browsing, playing games, watching movies, using GPS, look at pictures and so on with your tiny screen and the poor browser without flash. But we are in 2011 now and not in 2008 where the iPhones are in now.
Tom-Helge, 03 Jul 2011Ok, lets just take it this way.
-Can your iPhone 4 play 1080 flash content, play 1080 MKV m... moreBy the way, you still didn't answer my questions. You have the most powerful phone on the planet, but can you play Street Fighter?
You have the most powerful phone on the planet, can you plug in your electric guitar and play on it with virtual amps?
I know, you might counter with answers like "Wanna game? Get a console!" or "Who needs virtual amps" yada yada yada, but the point is, the answer to the above is still NO.
My answer is NO to your questions, your answer is NO to mine.
Sort of get it now? I love games, iOS kicks Androids ass in gaming. I love having a mini amp in my pocket, where I can just go to friends, and try out some music ideas.
You love 1080 video. You love flash on your web. Android beats iPhone in this.
What you don't get is no one is disagreeing with you. But despite all your protestations, I would still go for iPhone for my reasons stated above.
Read my comments again, please see if I wrote anything unreasonable. If so, please point it out to me.
